I checked out this spot at about 11:30 this morning, and I saw the American
Kestrel in addition to six Killdeer, four Red-tailed Hawks, one male
Northern Harrier (which was harassing a Red-tail), two Song Sparrows, two
Canada Geese, two Red-winged Blackbirds, and lots of American Crows.
Unfortunately I didn't see the Eastern Meadowlarks. On the way there, I saw
two Turkey Vultures above the intersection of Cheesefactory Rd. and Rt. 116,
and on the way back I saw a female harrier on Cheesefactory, plus a
Sharp-shinned Hawk (briefly) and two more Red-tails in the fields on Dorset
St. just south of the intersection with Cheesefactory. Great raptor day!
